to stand between an american and intoxication much. on that note the "new york times" ran a front page article yesterday lamenting tough mandatory prison sentences for drug dealers. the left believes they are not violent offenders. so if you are selling meth, heroin, cocaine, that's not an act that causes harm or pain to another person, oh, no. are you kidding me? those of you who know firsthand about addiction know how crazy that point of view is. people who sell drugs are the lowest rung. they are committing violence against other human beings. period.

gallagher has more on that. >> reporter: it's a cash cow for new york city. $293 million in the past five years alone. the reason new york is being sued is the drivers think the i is rigging them. federal law says the yellow lights at intersections where the speed olympic is 30-mile-an-hour has to be at least 3 seconds long. trim a seth sent out to engineers. they checked out a dozen lights and found all of the yellow lights were too short. some of them up to a half second short. that half second resulting in tens of thousands of extra tickets. the new york department of transportation says there has been no substantiation that any red light cameras were improperly timed. triple aaa acknowledges their mini study is not enought to support this lawsuit but says there is nothing to support the city's claim that cameras save time. too short yellow lights guarantee lots of citations will be issues but does nothing to improve safety. there are 540 communities in this country that use these cameras. the highest fines right here in california, $480. and most of them are not running the red light.

but there's an article on the front page of the "new york times" that suggests that speaker boehner is actually in a stronger position in his caucus than when he was elected two years ago. how is he doing, do you think? >> well, i think he's in a stronger position because republicans feel like they're in a weaker position. i think a lot of republicans who might prefer a different leader don't feel they have the luxury of that right now. in fact, even congressman kantor and others, who boehner didn't think he could count on the last time around, are being supportive. republicans are trying to calculate how much they have to give in now and is there a way to fall back with the idea of being able to move ahead in a more aggressive way next year. that's why you saw the president in a very preemptive way trying to rule out the idea of tying talks to next february to raising the debt ceiling. >> alan simpson, the co-chair of the president's deficit commission, was on the "today" show this morning and he said all this talk about either side being able to go off the cliff is ridiculous. let
